The timeless elegance of velvet lights up the winter of 2022 (and there is no need for special occasions!)

Velvet dress

Among the trends of this year, velvet makes sparks and among blazers, sweaters and skirts a great classic cannot be missing: the evening dress

Not long ago we told you about the great return of the velvet blazer – especially in red Gucci by Tom Ford to remember the 90s, but not only – back to sparkle in our wardrobe to be worn every day. Yes, because if last year we saw rhinestones and glitter dominate the scene, this year elegance has a minimal and sensual appeal: two coordinates that make the velvet dress an evening must-have that is urgent to have. Without excluding that a lively short model, however, can be worn without waiting for the moon.

Long, midi and elegant velvet dresses: how to combine the models for winter 2022-2023

Are you already imagining wearing a wonderful burgundy or green dress on Christmas Eve? Go back and look at velvet dresses in a decidedly different perspective: the latest fashion diktat for some years now is to normalize what we would probably preclude ourselves from wearing on some occasions. And velvet is one of those fabrics that we always end up associating with Christmas, but which instead of innate elegance we can include in our daily evening wardrobe.

The long or midi model combined with a pair of pumps with a sophisticated charm will be perfect, as always, with a pair of high or low pumps, but if you want to soften its natural elegant note, focus on models with slits and combine them with a pair of combat boots, boots or ankle boots: a look with a decidedly rock flavor, especially with new nuances. Purple is one of these, suggested directly by Tom Ford , which also revolutionizes the classic low-cut model, which covers the shoulders and focuses on a deep décolléte.

Bags and bijoux are the accessories that will illuminate even more the sensual and magical effect that velvet has always suggested: black, gold and silver, they will give a glamorous and decisive touch to your evening looks. In fact, let's keep long or midi velvet dresses in the evening, while we can reinvent short dresses even during the day.

Short velvet dresses: how to wear them even during the day by choosing the "daily" shades

Velvet is by its nature an elegant fabric with light-dark shades, which is why it is generally seen as an evening fabric. This year, however, there are not only the great classics: in addition to black, dark blue, fir green and red, there is also fuchsia , light green, yellow and blue, shades that we can also wear at morning.

A lunch or an aperitif in the afternoon is the perfect opportunity to be elegant and chic but with a touch of vivacity that we can also enhance with a pair of ton sur ton or simply nude tights. For comfy shoes at the most with a pair of Dr. Martens or Converse to rewrite the grunge according to the 2022 trends.
